‘journey’ illustration- pencil+digital

Here is a little illustration I just finished for last weeks Illustration Friday challenge (finished a week or two late but I just loved the concept…’Journey’). It was a little bit of an experiment- pencil rendered then scanned into PS and coloured digitally. I haven’t done much digital work but hope to improve my skills (even though I do prefer the look of traditional materials), and eventually learn 3D programs like Blender (which should be really useful for scientific stuff!!).


Also- here are some awesome tutorials I found really useful to get ideas from on HOW to combine pencil and digital rendering techniques:
